The Horowitz Piano Series at the Yale School of Music presents Anton Kuerti in a special solo recital on Wednesday, April 21, 2010 at 8 pm in Sprague Hall (470 College Street, New Haven). Kuerti, praised by a Fanfare magazine critic as “the best pianist currently playing,” will perform a classic program of music from Haydn and Mozart to Schumann and Mendelssohn.

Kuerti, whose recitals have sold out the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, will play Mozart’s Fantasy in C minor, K. 475; Haydn’s Sonata No. 62 in E-flat major, Hob. XVI/52; Schumann’s Piano Sonata No. 2 in G minor, Op. 22; Mendelssohn’s Fantaisie in F-sharp minor, Op. 28; and Beethoven’s Sonata No. 31 in A-flat major, Op. 110. Kuerti’s choice of repertoire and his interpretations reflects what the Boston Musical Intelligencer has called his “probing musical intelligence and utter disdain for theatrics.” MORE
